UFC 243 last month produced jaw dropping results as undefeated Israel ‘The Last Stylebender’ Adesanya absolutely destroyed long time middleweight champion Robert Whittaker to become the middleweight champion of the world.

Adesanya’s next assignment however was already lined up for him as another undefeated contender Paulo Costa defeated former title challenger Yoel Romero in a title eliminator at UFC 241 in August. However last week Costa announced that he’ll have to undergo a bicep surgery which would keep him out for around eight months.

Seizing the opportunity, Romero wasted no time in calling out Adesanya. Adesanya too obliged for a showdown in early 2020. UFC President Dana White however disagrees.

Speaking with Adam’s Apple, White said he cannot grant a title fight to Romero as he’s coming of a loss. White would want Romero to get a win before solidifying his title spot.

“[Adesanya] wants to fight Yoel Romero,” White said. “He wants Romero. So we’re talking about giving Romero a fight coming up soon here and then (Adesanya) will fight the winner of that fight.”

Keeping performances in mind, #4 ranked Jared Cannonier is certainly making the right waves for a big fight.
